Rowan's Creek Small Batch Bourbon

Rowans Creek is made by hand in small lots, stored in charred oak barrels for up to 12 years and hand-bottled one batch at a time.

This Bourbon takes its namesake from the creek that still runs through the distillery. Back in the late 1700s when John Rowan first settled around Bardstown, whiskey making was the order of the day. John went on and made a name for himself as a well respected judge and statesmen. The judge is long since gone, but the creek that still bears his name is still carrying the best limestone spring water there ever was for making good Bourbon. Try a sip of it, straight up in a snifter, or add a dab of branch water if you like. Either way, its the very best there is.

Tasting notes ..

Amber, with a dark golden cast. Medium-bodied. Smooth Texture. Quite elegant and attractive on the palate. Stunning, velvety mouth feel of delicate fruit and spice elements. Carries forth in a highly fragrant, lingering finish.

Wine International Magazine

Incredibly balanced, its zesty aromatics feature some surprising honeysuckle and jasmine notes. The mouthfeel is supple but not thick; theres also a subdued sweetness with just a touch of pepper and no detectable heat. Attractively packaged and reasonably priced, something this good cant last forever.
